Arab Strap Share New Song “Aphelion”
“These two songs were written, recorded and mixed during the sessions for As Days Get Dark but as much as we loved them, we couldn’t find a place for them on the final album.” explains Aidan Moffat. “Maybe it’s because they seem to have their own distinct identities, but sometimes a song just sounds better on its own, when it’s not part of a crowd and vying for attention. So, to celebrate the anniversary of the album’s release, we present As Days Get Dark‘s two runaway loners; a couple of black sheep who might not click with the rest of the family but, even though they aren’t very happy, are still worth a cuddle.”
The runaway loners, “Aphelion” and “Flutter” will be available via a limited edition coloured 7” vinyl, one year after Arab Strap’s first album release since 2006. The first track “Aphelion” is available to stream and buy as a download now .
